Cambridge English Examinations
For candidates who wish to obtain a formal qualification in the English language, the British Council Netherlands
arranges ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) examinations appropriate to the candidate’s level.
These examinations are produced by Cambridge English Language Assessment. Cambridge English is one of
the world’s leading educational assessment agencies. It produces numerous examinations for the secondary,
further and higher education sectors, both within the United Kingdom and internationally. Today the British
Council worldwide administers the Cambridge examinations in more than 150 countries. The examinations are
recognised internationally by universities, employers and education authorities.
Types of Examination
The Cambridge English examinations are linked to an international system of levels for assessing European
languages. The range includes specialist examinations for business and academic purposes. All four areas of
language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) are tested, focusing on the candidate’s ability to
communicate effectively in English.
The Cambridge examinations are comparable to standards of the Association of Language Testers in Europe
(ALTE) and the Common European Framework for language assessment (CEF):
